Diocesan Briefs


ECCLESIASTICAL PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA AND YUKON

Priorities identified

A priorities task force in the diocese of New Westminster has identified four main priorities which it is asking deanery meetings to discuss.

The priorities are Christian formation, congregational development, outreach ministry, and enhancing diocesan unity.

The priorities task force was appointed by Bishop Michael Ingham last spring. It circulated a questionnaire to diocesan synod delegates in May, asking them what they thought New Westminster should spent its time, money and energy on in the next five years.

Topic

Sorrento to be host

Sorrento Centre in Kootenay diocese has been chosen as the location for the first project of the Breakaway Hockey Foundation, an independent charitable organization that works with disadvantaged young people by helping them develop skills in athletics and the arts.

About 20 young people, most of them Native children between the ages of 14 and 15, will be housed and fed at Sorrento for the next 10 months while they participate in the BHF programs.

The young people come from Native communities across the country, including Davis Inlet, Labrador, Pelly's Crossing, Yukon Territory, and other First Nation communities.

Apology sought

The diocese of Keewatin has asked for an apology from Indian Affairs Minister Robert Nault for criticism of a visit to the diocese by a member of the Burnt Church community.

In published remarks, Mr. Nault said the visit was politically motivated and questioned why it was made right before the calling of a federal election.

But Archdeacon David Ashdown, executive officer of Keewatin, said the visit was part of a meeting scheduled early last summer. He also noted that Mr. Nault himself was asked to attend the same meeting and declined to do so.

"Personally, as someone with a long record of involvement with the Liberal Party ... I find this accusation not only silly but offensive," Mr. Ashdown said.
